If one shoe was going to cause mass chaos, of course it would be Jordans.
According to SeattlePi, people are freaking the F out over the release of the limited edition Nike Air Jordan 11 "Concord".
"What began as a fight in line for new shoes ended with police deploying pepper spray to break up the crowd at Southcenter Mall early Friday. More than 1,000 people lined up at 4 a.m. to buy the Nike Air Jordans 11 Retro Concords at four stores in the mall, Tukwila Officer Mike Murpy said. But the stores sold out and all but about 50 people got their shoes, sparking anger among the tired crowd."
Police ended up using pepper spray to calm the crowds and one man was arrested for assaulting a police officers.
"People have been maced. It's ridiculous, all for a shoe," said one shopper. When asked why he himself had stood in line for hours, the shopper said, "Because it was a Christmas present, and it's the only thing I wanted."
This isn't even happing in just one store. Four people were also arrested in Atlanta during a mad dash to the shoe.
What's worth the wait more... shoes or new iPhones?
